Report Card Friday - R2BC

Hahaha, it was 19 degrees C today and the forecast is hotter tomorrow.
I'm still praying for a snow day before the end of the winter though.
Here are my Reasons 2B Cheerful for this week. I'm on the linky at Mich's Mummy from the Heart where it's  being hosted for January.

Here in Israel we have two semesters instead of three terms. Report cards at the end of each semester of course. Mine have to be in by Sunday and I've written 29 out of 44. I'll do another 9 on Saturday evening after Shabbat and the final 6 on Sunday afternoon after school. I got an extension on those final 6 because one mother requested that I hold off writing the reports until her child had given in some homework and they are going to help him with it over the weekend. Luckily for me his class teacher agreed.

I could have got another few reports written this afternoon but I somehow lost one of the pages saved somewhere in my computer. Or not saved at all. Anyway, it disappeared with 8 reports written in English and translated into Hebrew. Ugh! It was very frustrating at the time but in those situations you just have to redo it straight away. By the time I'd finished it was already time to stop for Shabbat.

January Project - Paperwork
Writing my reports is part of the January Project so I'm doubly glad that they will be done by the end of Sunday.

Park Outing
I was able to get so much work done today because Deed was at school this morning and then after school her friend's dad took them both out for lunch and to play in some super duper park somewhere on the other side of Jerusalem (Park Mexico for those who know it). So that was an extra five hours of peace for me in which to work.

To top it all off, we are invited out for dinner tonight so I didn't even have to stop to cook.

Wishing everyone a great weekend,
lots of love from
Self Satisfied in Jerusalem.


  1. I was confused looking at your photo until I read the caption! :-) It looks much more like where I live - yesterday it went up to 12C (like Spring to us) and when I woke up this morning it was raining - about 2 hours ago it started to be icy rain as the temps dropped and now there is a blizzard going on out there - and by the time I have to go out tomorrow morning it is to be MINUS 14C!!!! Crazy!
    What a bonus day for you with DD off out and then an invitation to dinner as well! I know that my friends who are teachers dread report time - it's exhausting. All their reports have to be done online in a special template - that is awkward at best. One year a friend had completed everything and then the system ate it! She was beside herself (and she was' it the only one it happened to) - it was determined that it was the program and not the individuals so as expert was brought in and everything was retrieved!! Have a lovely dinner and good luck getting everything finished by Sunday night.

    1. Thanks Marge. I left the easier reports until last and now that I'm in the swing of it, it will go much faster. It's the most frustrating thing when all your work just disappears but you really just have to do it again a quickly as possible (if it was your own fault of course). Have a great weekend, I don't think I've ever experienced minus 14. Stay warm. xxx

  2. Enjoy the dinner and hope you enjoyed the peace and I bet you're going to be so relieved when all those reports are done. Roll on Sunday evening! xx

    1. Yup, I'm even thinking that I might get them all done tomorrow evening - all except the one that needs to give in his homework.

  3. No snow here either and I'm ok with that! What are. Pain about the lost reports, I hate things like that but at least they'll be finished this weekend. Have a fab week ahead. Mich x

    1. Thanks. I've had this happen before and I know th ebest thing is to redo it a quickly as possible - so I did. I shall have a good week as soon as the work is finished. xxx
